Am I legally responsible for paying rent? Posted on February 11, 2011

I moved out on 1/15 from my wife's dad's house that we were renting. She stayed yet he is demanding that I pay the current month as well. I have paid him nearly half of the amount. He claims that the only way that I can have my name removed from the lease is to pay him what he is asking. We signed a lease 5 years ago and I never received a copy of it. Am I legally responsible for any amount? The lease was not broken as his daughter plans to continue to live in the house.
